Review: Stick Shift

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When sweet musician/teacher Lily goes to North Carolina for a mini vacation to house sit for her friend, she never imagined that her life would be turned upside down.

Lily is a huge race fan, and while her friend is out of the country, she leaves Lily with her racing tickets. Before a race one day, Lily and a friend go to an autograph session that features Cam Carter - THE hottest driver in racing today. Lily is shy, 32 years old, and doesn't feel she is anything special. After an awkward meeting with the hot 25 year old Cam at the autograph session.....he feels an instant attraction to her and she feels the same, but doesn't want to admit it to anyone.

He scribbles his number and a time and place to meet on the back of one of his photos - and she shyly leaves the autograph signing without even realizing that he had slipped her his number.

After much prompting from her friend, Lily goes to met Cam, blah, blah, blah....and they proceed to have some crazy hot sex.

Lily is never quite comfortable with the whole Cam thing. He is young, hot, rich, and famous - she is (what she considers) old, not famous, and not the rail-thin model she thinks everyone expects him to be with. I sort of love that about her. I have my own body issues - so I totally relate to Lily thinking she isn't pretty enough to date the hot guy. (Awwww.)

And Cam. Jesus Christ - he is just about the hottest thing there is. His affection for Lily is so honest and sweet - it's so easy to see why she fell so hard for him so fast. And really - Lily is a sweetheart - so that works the other way too. Lily is real - she doesn't want Cam because of his fame....she wants him for him and he knows it.

I really loved this story. It was short, sweet, passionate, and VERY VERY sexy.

Solid 4.5 stars.
